Heart health - Regular physical activity can lower your blood pressure and cholesterol levels and can reduce the risk of illnesses such as Type II diabetes or heart disease.
Bone support - Exercise is a good way to build strong, healthy bones and can help slow the bone loss associated with getting older.
Sense of well-being - Being in good shape can give you more energy, reduce anxiety and depression, improve self-esteem, and help you better manage stress.
Social life - Staying active can be a great way to have fun, make new friends, and spend quality time with family.
Physical appearance - You look better when you're in shape. Staying active helps you tone muscles and maintain a healthy weight - and can even improve your posture.
